  1. Thanks so much for your nice comments. I've been quilting for many years, some years being more productive than others depending on the demands of life. You also do wonderful work....thanks for looking at my albums.

    Hi! You commented on my post today about my "works in progress" and so I came to look at your quilts. You're an incredible quilter! Oh my gosh! I've dabbled with scrap quilts and I have to say....yours are perfection! What an inspiration you are to all us new to this craft. Thank you!

  4. Sandy...My solution has always been to tape the backing down - but you've already done that! Are you able to use the basting spray? If not, I guess hooping it would be a good option. Maybe you could use a few pins in those trouble spots and remove them as you need to quilt. I'm sorry but I don't know of anything else to do. Barb
  5. Barb, help me out a bit. I'm pinning and basting the silhouette quilt. I have a gigantic dining room table and have laid out my backing fabric and taped it down securely, stretched flat. Next goes my batting - and it is crease-less, too. Put on my top and smooth it down and pin. So far, so good. Now I start my basting (only because I want to make double sure that all is secure and straight!!!) and I looked at the back and there are a few pieces that I think may give me trouble when I'm doing my machine quilting - not really creased or bundled, but enough slack in between the pins that I may have a few minor folds as I'm sewing.

    How do I get through this . . . I sure don't want to do a quilt that has a rumpled back. I'm considering hooping and doing my FMQ inside the hoop. That way I can make certain it is nice and flat . . . HELP!

    I just literally posted those albums. I am so surprised people have already seen it. Thank you for your lovely comment. I was sick when piecing and quilting that and forgot those pictures were on that file!! Don't know how to remove them without deleting the whole thing. Then they were not in order!! Oh well. I bought that fabric at "Fons and Porter's" quilt shop in Winterset, Iowa. I was really pleased with the outcome. Piece and blessings, Vicki
  7. Thank you for looking...Barb
